Dear Parent/Carer,

With this letter, and on behalf of school governors and staff, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all families and children who are new to our school, to those who already attend our school and to those who have long connections with our school.  Anyone who is looking at our website with a view to choosing this school for their child please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange a visit. I hope that this website will also provide you with useful and up to date information.  

A prospectus is provided to help all parents feel confident about choosing us as the right school for your child.  The website and prospectus together will give you a flavour of what school life is about, however, it is better to actually visit the school to see the children at work and play.  Please contact the school office to arrange a guided tour.  You will be assured of a warm welcome by all our staff and children.

We pride ourselves on good communications with parents and every week we send out a newsletter to keep you up to date with school life.  They are also posted on the website where information is updated on a regular basis.

We believe in a strong partnership between the parent, teacher and child.  This is vital if your child is to reach their full potential, both academically and socially.  We ask for support from you in our efforts to provide the kind of environment in which every child will make the most of their abilities and the opportunities available.  Many visitors comment on the special caring ethos of our school and we believe that the quality of our relationships within the school environment is central to making it a happy, secure place for children.

From time to time we will hold meetings to discuss matters of interest to you.  We hope you will attend our meetings, especially those to discuss the progress your child is making.  Children are always so pleased when parents come into school.  We have a weekly achievement assembly every Monday morning at 9.10am and parents, grandparents and family members are invited to attend and share this experience.

We know your child will be happy at Parish Church Primary School and our partnership with you will always be in the best interests of your child.  We look forward to working closely with you. 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs E. Woodthorpe
